I've got one and it is falling apart after 50 river days. Absolutely NO customer service - they are out of business. No phone, no email.

I've had one for 4 or 5 seasons and its still kicking, with the obligitory gasket replacement.

I bought it on closeout, and proceeded to put a big o' gash on one arm getting cozy with a rock while upside down. I e-mailed them (probably about 2003) about repair options. They replied: ship it to us, we'll fix it and ship it back. I was back in business in less than a month (during the summer season, no less).

I know they went outta business for a while, but I'm all for given the thumbs up, "'cause ya gotta have faith, bo-bo bo-bo"

They aren't out of business. Maybe they're just busy?

Thems good people....

Try [email protected], I think, or www.bombergear.com. There are numbers and emails.

Who knows where those guys went? They sold out their Bodo store couple of years back, reports of cheap labor/marginal quality since. Replaced mine w/ a Kokatat & am happier (drier) w/ it.

Well, sheeooot.

I stand newly informed, thanks. Well, good for them, mean that, seemed like good folks. Ah'll keep an eye out for their shirts, liked those, & still wear same 4 yr-old neoprene lined shorts. By the way, does anyone make a 3-4mm fuzzy or neoprene for dogs for under dog vests? And how 'bout dog booties? Doggy neoprene beenies? Who else has a good boat / camp dog who shivers sometimes? Looking for something great for them.
